I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The amount of PTO time is very competetive and the benefits offered are fantastic

Cons

Management in broadcast operations is terrible. They get a couple of people that are qualified to make sure everything runs well and have them do their jobs for them. At the least make them look competent. They keep unqualified management indefintely due to low turn over. The multiple members of Turners broadcast operations management team are not only incompetent they are often unpleasant as well. If you have options I suggest staying far from this department. They give the illusion that there is a positive atmosphere but it's all smoke and mirrors.

Advice to Management

Senior level management needs to ask the staff for their honest opinions about the mangement team they work for. The yearly survey needs to break down questions by position instead of lumping together upper management and lower management levels. I may feel like my network VP is doing a good job but that my department manager isn't. It is not an accurate portrayal of how employees feel about their management and work enviroment.

    Pros

    Because the company is large there are a lot of places for growth. Attractive benefits and overall fun work-life culture are evident throughout.

    Cons

    It would be nice to see more direct career development programs added within. Most everything else has an upside to it.

    Advice to Management

    Overall level of professional experience is high. Open opportunities for influence by strong mentors as well as opportunity to mentor others.

    "Friendly atmosphere, but people are clueless, the higher ups are even more clueless"

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. They do have a lot of training programs available which can be beneficial. The atmosphere overall is pleasant and the people are easy going overall.

    Cons

    In my department only the staff really know what is going on or what they are doing, but not even 100% at that. The further you go up you realize that management has no clue of what those below are doing or if they are even doing things correctly. Hire a lot of external people in higher positions to manage those below, this causes resentment from lower employees and frustration that those above are clueless. I've never been in such an environment where management are only people managers and have no idea the jobs those below are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within and up especially in areas of processes so those people can train new hires who fill the roles of those newly promoted.
